The fifth season of Teen Mom 2 just got under way with a premiere on MTV, and after the dismal ratings for the off-shoot, Teen Mom 3, the network is surely counting on it to be a success. But are the folks at Viacom counting their chickens before they're hatched? Sounds like it!
Star Jenelle Evans Instagrammed a photo this week of boyfriend (and father-to-be) Nathan Griffith during shooting of the show. But doesn't MTV already have season 5 in the cannon? Jenelle even shared the other day that she got season 5 in the mail. You know what this means!
Season 6 of Teen Mom 2 could be happening!
Get a load of the photo:
Sure, he could be doing work for any show, but just look at what Jenelle said in the caption:
more Teen Mom coming yr way!
The comment, of course, is a nod to the voice-overs of the stars saying, "More Teen Mom coming your way, and it starts right now," which MTV will put into its commercial breaks during the show. But the photo just went up on Instagram this week. Which would indicate they're shooting NOW.

And why not? Jenelle's pregnancy would surely make for an explosive season 6. Not to mention, while Teen Mom was cancelled after four seasons and Teen Mom 3 after just one, this cast has kept ratings high enough to gain a season 5 and has steadily remained in the news even when their show wasn't on TV.
Jenelle, Kailyn Lowry, Chelsea Houska, and Leah Calvert ARE the people who keep viewers tuning in to MTV. The network would be wise to keep them around as long as possible.
Is it too soon for MTV to be taping season 6? Will you watch?
